United Nations Year in Review: Looking back at major events of 2012. Watch the film in English here.

Storms and climate change made headlines. Countries struggled between turmoil and transition. From violence in Syria to militant occupation in Mali to a new cycle of violence in Gaza - the UN was called to protect civilians and find solutions.

2012 will be remembered as complex and challenging year for the United Nations. Conflict, poverty, natural disasters, terrorism, climate change and human rights violations continue to plague humankind. The United Nations remains the global forum for discussing and solving some of the world’s most difficult problems.
Carrying the torch for all these issues, Ban Ki-moon, at the Olympics in London, implored the world to keep the fire burning, for tolerance, peace and harmony. For “The Future we Want”.
